    If chaintech can come back then maybe DFI can return to the consumer market!

    and ABit? There weren't many better board out there back then. Asus (ROG specifically) and Gigabyte have just simply stepped into their "dead-mans-shoes"

    Bear in mind full-fat mobos have more than doubled in price since they left the market - They must have gotten a whiff of the money.

    I can still remember the joy unbundling all the goodies supplied with the Chaintech Zenith 7NJS.

    Excellent news and here's hoping they support AMD as well, they had a great spread of choice and quality across both sockets back in the day.

    Chaintech, that name rings a bell, I had one of their boards years ago, i remember it had a black PCB and all the fittings were the blingiest gold you've ever seen but I thought it looked cool at the time :)

    @Tattysnuc - now Abit should make a comeback, their stuff was amazing before they went silly with all the tat

    Man, if Chaintech comes back I'll return to all Chaintech boards. I REALLY enjoyed both the boards and the excellent support. I had mostly Chaintech all the way up to the first 939 boards, then they mostly left the market. It sucked.

    MSI also stepped up to fill others shoes, Asrock are joining the big boys and even the likes of ECS are releasing good boards for the enthusiast is the market now not a bit saturated with all the big boys releasing motherboards in a variety of flavours that are just a step up with in the same chipset release . Where can the new or returning manufacturers break into the market?
    Maybe looking where others fail and perfecting competitors designs with the ideas of the user implemented, how many good boards would be great if only this or that was changed?
    Also I hope they rejoin the GPU market too then as being as much into aesthetics as performance I like having matching kit!

    I still have a fully functioning Chaintech Zenith 7NJS complete with a matching Gold nVidia graphics card which I think is a Ti200.

    It was a great board at the time and stood out from the crowd, though getting it was a pita!

    I had more trouble with Abit boards so wont use them and dont miss them.
